This Black Walnut bowl is my 2nd try at WOP. It is 2 1/4” to 6 3/4” in height by 13 3/4” to 15 1/2” in width. It will be a while before I finish the other half of the block. This tree was down a bank, I mean way down a bank. I wouldn’t have got it up but the owner had a cable car that carried it for me. At the top end, the cable was tied to a Douglas Fir. This tree has been growing for 600+ years. It is 27’ in circumference. I noticed that it had been in a fire, amazingly that was in 1906! I hope the Apple bowl I traded for this block made the owner happy because we have talked about that day many times.
